Reads like a slightly spiffed up North Korea for its travel restrictions, inability to roam without a minder, etc.

Which westerner in their right mind would want to stay in the place as is evident from the visa restrictions?

I finally had time to process a few from Marnie and me--not all are
labelled but most geotagged.  Recommend slide show with ARROW at right
(not that many really).  Thanks to Maestro Moose processing for saving
"too late to share" image, which was front focused and had some motion
blur.  Techartpro AFadapter with OM lenses a bit too slow on A7RII and
would not do eye AF--may be possible on OM A7RIII.   One can hit the
"i"  for more image info and click on the map to see where they were
shot if desired--or not.

To expound a bit on Moose's details I have included a link sent from
one of our rotating guides to us after we returned on traveling to

Link from  guide Rinzin:


One just  cant go but most use a Bhutanese outfitter at some level.  I
had 2/3 of an itinerary planned and they will accommodate all requests
if it is at all possible.  We had an extra layer of US overhead but had
a driver and guide per car and that would not be the case otherwise.
The organizer had been there over 30 times and had good contacts with
even some remote groups to facilitate good opportunities for nice
images.   I had thoughts of an astro-landscape of the Tiger's nest ---
a guide with headlamp would take me up early eve  if desired and hike
back up at 3AM as well---suppose it was not a disaster that it was not
to be as it was foggy as it is a bit of an effort--they would not let
me lug much myself at all and insisted I bring anything I might want
available--this was Jamyang with some of my stuff:


The Brokpa people are really quite remote and were 3 days trek from
the nearest road until recently--now 1.5 days. They had virtually no
contact with  westerners until about 2008 we were told.

Anyway here is what I have:


Comments or suggestions at alternative processing appreciated.

Still have to pick up OM film shots from lab, Mike
